    Undoubtedly we are facing the prototype of Roman palaces for its architectural structure truly refined, who made the reference model for several hundred years from its completion, 1519. Architect Antonio da Sangallo the younger was commissioned by Melchiorre Baldassini. The façade is severe enough typical feature sangallesca, completed by a corner Ashlar and by a horizontal band at the first floor also adorns the window sills. The entrance portal is fine and important and wears two Doric columns supporting the entablature; Once you enter the lobby with vaulted ceiling, you pass the beautiful inner courtyard where you can admire the façade. And you are attracted by porch with three arches on pillars always elegant loggia, surmounted by a balustraded Doric. A string course cornice marks ground and first floor and is decorated with a classic style range with metope of liturgical reasons and triglyphs several (including the elephant Hanno), alternating the emblem Baldassini. The Interior of the building was the aristocratic image confirmation with a profusion of frescoes by Giovanni da Udine, Perin de Vaga and beautifully decorated ceilings. It was, because most of the paintings are missing, insane work that, in the past, they rent apartments making havoc of the same as some indoor and outdoor facilities, regardless. Some of the frescoes was also removed with the technique of "jerk" for other destinations. And not only because it was a plan that has partly undermined the stability of the building, while the courtyard was a printing press. It is to the credit of the Istituto Luigi Sturzo-that there is-you have started long ago a major restoration that returned to the Palace its original appearance, in part, and only outside. The building they have resided for centuries famous personalities including Giuseppe Garibaldi. The title is related to an episode in which the hero of the two worlds, as he was applauded by the crowd below, when you looked out the window of a nearby hotel where he was temporarily staying, shortly before becoming host of Palazzo Baldassini. Well to calm the people cheering the spirit his Spartan, gave a speech of only three words. <Romani, siate="" seri!="">>. Evaluation of the building away from the excellence that you should right as tainted by tampering that has endured, especially the Interior and the raising of a plan.</Romani,>

    Immediately behind the ivy-covered charming Pizzeria on Koppello Street, before reaching the temple, Sant ' Agostino is a solid building with barred Windows kind of impregnable. This is a classic Renaissance Palazzo 16-century according to the project of Antonio da Sangallo and decorated with frescoes by Giovanni from Udine.

    Palazzo Baldassini, built in the early 16th century by the famous architect Antonido da Sangallo (Jr.) to the lawyer Melchior Baldassini, and to this day, the astounding beauty of its classical architectural forms and cosy patio. Inside is the Institute with library and halls with frescoes. Only grilles on the Windows somehow spoil the overall impression.

  • Palazzo Baldassini, the work of Antonio da Sangallo the younger, now seat of the Istituto Luigi Sturzo, houses frescoes by the school of Raphael: Perin del Vaga and Polidoro da Caravaggio, Giovanni da Udine. It was built between 1516-1519 about at the behest of the jurist Melchiorre Baldassini designed by Antonio da Sangallo the younger. The three-story building has a courtyard that opens from the side of the counter on the first floor in a lodge. In the West Wing of the ground floor, inside the so-called Sala Giovanni da Udine, grotesque decorations can be admired. From the staircase leads to the first floor loggia. Here two representative areas follow: first Council Hall frescoed by a pictorial frieze in tiles of Polidoro da Caravaggio; follows the Salon of Perin del Vaga, where the remains of paintings are based on two registers framed by a score of architectural illusion. The main floor is the bedroom of the Baldassini, adorned with a frieze of acanthus scrolls.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
